how well you understand these things as an attorney and as a correspondent. that's a big level. he we are a case that fascinated a lot of people, including me. what did you think? can eve you even ayou is stunned? i. have to say i was surprised. because how quickly the jurors came back with this verdict and the fact it was a wholesale rejection of the prosecution's case. i mean, the jurors had an array of charges to consider. everything from the top charge of first-degree death penalty eligible murder all wait down to just a straight charge of child abuse, and even though anyone watching this case could see the problems of proof the prosecutors were dealt. the fact we don't know when caylee died, or exactly how caylee died although prosecutors had theories that were consistent with the evidence, but the evidence wasn't positive of those theories. at the end of the day, i thought the jurors might get back there in the jury room and say you know what? given her behavior, not reporting the child missing for 31 day, that search of death emanating out of the trunk of the car, multiple witn
a big deal. so what is a big deal? white house officials tell me anything over $2 trillion, but he is pushing for more in the area of cuts that would equal $4 trillion over the next 10 to 12 years. now, this all comes against the backdrop of a report today in the "washington post" saying thatm president obama is putting social security on the table along with medicare and medicaid and when we asked the white house about this, they said, look, this is not news. the president has always supported the idea of small cuts in those entitlement programs to make them more effective as long as the cuts didn't impact beneficiaries and having said that some folks on the hill say there are some scenarios which would see a major overhaul of the entitlement programs, but the white house says they would not want to see anything to overhaul the main programs. but one of the sticking points here, thomas, is taxes. democrats want to see a rollback in tax credits for the wealthy americans and in big corporations, and the republicans have said no way, we don't support anything that looks like a tax in
and angry ever since they heard the verdict. >> lilia, thank you. we want to get to the big questions of what is next for casey anthony. we want to bring in our legal team. i'm joined by veteran criminal trial lawyer, ricky, and wendy murphy, former prosecutor. i know we have a lot to talk about. wendy, what is your reaction, the initial reaction to what the judge was able to do? because according to everyone that i have talked to, he threw the book at her, at least the book that he was given to the jury. >> it was a paper back but a book nonetheless. he gave her the max. no question. why he chose to do that, my sense is, although judges may never admit this, when there is a mob outside and they are angry and they believe something happened to this child, even though she's acquitted, when the public feels like the justice system failed, the judge will do what needs to be done to keep things calm. let's say judge perry is right, that she will have at most one more month behind the bars, or at least a few weeks, it allows this noise to calm down. >> do you agree with ricky, that it allo
>>> the big story today, job wars. good afternoon, i'm matt miller, in for dylan ratigan. more than 14 million americans still out of work, further complicating the drive for a long-term budget deal. can a deal on the debt quell the uncertainty some say hurts hiring or will new spending cuts, themselves, kill jobs and turn a bad economy worse? the labor department reports a net gain of only 18,000 jobs last month. just 18,000. that's even worse than may reese' vised 25,000. at this rate the economy needs to add nearly 14 million jobs in the next three years to get the rate down to 6%. that's 382,000 a month. and we've never seen that kind of growth ever. and don't forget, that 9.2% unemployment rate is deceiving when you add in the nearly 1 million this couraged workers who have given up hope and 8.6 million settling for part-time gigs, the rate balloons to more like 16%. republicans are already running with this report, heading into sunday's do or die debt meeting at the white house. get a listen. >> the stimulus spending binge, excessive government regulations, and our overwhelmin
overboard, does he not know history? just because social media was so big in this trial, it's the trial of the century only because of social media. we've done this before. it's our culture. it's what happened. i'm very surprised by his comments. very surprised. >> thank you so much for joining us. appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> switching gears now to politics. president obama says when it comes to the national debt, the time to start making long-term solutions is now. the president appeared in the white house briefing room yesterday and invited leaders from both parties to a meeting tomorrow for the next step toward an agreement. >> i don't think the american people here sent us here to avoid tough problems. it's, in fact, what drives them nuts about washington. when both parties simply take the path of least resistance. and i don't want to do that here. i believe that right now we've got a unique opportunity to do something big. >> nbc's kristen welker on the north lawn this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, jeff. jay carney just wrapped up a news conference here and
out whether they want to continue to push for big deficit reduction or whether they want to pull back and punt to the next election. >> it seems as i sort of alluded these are two guys, boehner and obama who might like each other, ideology aside. is there a sense they could have worked out a deal if not for the extremists in their parties and what are you hearing? what's the buzz this weekend at camp david? is that giving people some hope? >> you know, as diylan said the darkest night is right before the dawn. i don't think we'll see much hope for the few days. the boehner/obama relationship, in the absence if they had stronger control over their bases, president obama is in a much stronger position than boehner is, they could have had a deal. it's not just ideological extremists. it's an issue of a culture in washington affirmed over the last three elections, you get elected by shouting no compromise, you get elected saying i am going to fight for what i believe and not going to bend on that and bending is the whole problem and that's what both parties are dealing with. it's not just
. >>> now to two big stories back here at home coming to us from the white house. a big number for president obama, and we're not talking about the debt here. $86 million was just raised between the dnc and his re-election team. we're going to talk more about that coming up later in the show. meanwhile this afternoon, the president wants to bring congress closer to this massive debt deal. but the meeting may include more discussion on a republican backup plan. minority leader mitch mcconnell has a fallback option, giving the president authority, and the full responsibility, to raise the debt ceiling $2.5 trillion in three increments. he put pressure on the white house today. take a listen. >> we'll sign legislation by the president that requires him to propose spending cuts greater than the debt limit he requests, make the president show in black and white the specific cuts he claims to support. if he refuses he'll have to raise the debt ceiling on his own. >> nbc's mike viqueira is live for us on the white house on the north lawn. good morning. >> good morning. >> the president still stress
're paying lip service, richard, at a very minimum, asking for that big deal, that grand bargain that we've heard so much about, and the president says he's still pressing for it. his omb director, budget director jack lew, had something to say about that this morning as well. >> he wants the largest deal possible. he wants to do the most we can to reduce the deficit. that would be the right thing to do for the american people. he made it clear he's willing to go into areas that he's not in the past been comfortable going into. i think that one can see a path to getting well over a trillion on things that we should be able to agree to. >> so richard, we're essentially in a holding pattern here. what's playing out are politics within each conference and caucus on capitol hill between republicans and democrats, between house and senate. republicans for their part this week are going to push forward an amendment to the constitution requiring a balanced budget. they say this is what's needed. even if it were to be ratified, which is considered a long shot, obviously it would do nothing in th
. >> what happened essentially is that this jobs report came over and poured a big bucket of cold water on quick hopes of a recovery. it tells you there was a slowdown and the word used was a standstill in hiring that happened in may and june. what we are going to be looking for next week is the beginning of earnings season. they will try to see if in this company companies can make money again. >> steve said many are looking for the confidence to start hiring. >>> it is a working weekend for congress right now struggling to reach a deal to raise the debt ceiling. crucial negotiations on a possible deal will take place at the white house tomorrow. this is what the president said on the talks this morning. >> we agree on some of the big things. we agreed that after a decade of racking up deficits and debt we need to get our fiscal house in order. we agreed in order to do that both sides have to step outside of their comfort zones and make some political sacrifices. and we agree that we simply cannot afford to default on our national obligations for the first time in our history. >> well,
. >> so many rumors and reports have clouded the last fwo two weeks. talk of a big argument, in which sources say charlene ran for the airport. another woman is claiming to have a child out of wed lock with albert. he has two, but the palace denies this. charlene, obviously, is staying. >> she said yes. >> yes. maybe it's not sure. >> still one more day. >> yes. >> i like the prince, and i like all of them, and they look happy. >> thank you very much to all our friends from around the world. fwloo it was a day for their royal subjects to remember. the couple invited every citizen. more than 7,000 to an outdoor party, a very euro concert, sinthesizers blaze and a brilliant light and fireworks display. the couple even looked like they were having a little fun at times. and today will be theirs. with monaco hoping the new sur even line esprincess charlene will remain surine here always. >> viva monaco. >> so today they get to do the big walk down the aisle. the bride will wear armani, 3,500 guests, an american soprano will perform. there will be crowned heads, super stars, super models,
with the president at the white house tomorrow. here's the president today. >> we agree on system of the big things. we agreed that after a decade of racking up deficits and debt we need to feet get our fiscal house in order. to do that, both sides have to step outside of their con fort zones to make political sacrifices. and we agree we simply cannot afford to default on the national obligations for the first time in our history. >> joining me now is white house correspondent mike have a caro. good morning to you. >> good morning, alex. >> are there enough of the similarities done to get the deal done this weekend? >> reporter: well, that's a great question. and a lot of people are drawing lines in the sand. over the past several weeks as we have led up to this very crucial, this critical weekend, alec, it appears there's really very little wiggle room. but we shall see. what's on the table is something of historic proportion. $4 trillion in spending cuts over ten years, over 12 years, that's one of the things being ironed out. of course, you know the story here. $14.3 trillion, that's the u.s. na

. the big question is there any relief in sight. alex wallace has an update. it's the duration that we're concerned about here. >> absolutely, you know if it was one or two days we could take it. we've complained but we can handle it. unfortunately we're talking about all the way through at least the end of next week having to deal with this heat and because of that we got excessive heat warns that stretch as you mentioned right in the mid-section of the country. already this morning out there for us we have very warm feel like temperatures, feels like right now this early morning in minneapolis, 91 degrees. we're only going get hotter as we get into this afternoon. sunday afternoon highs from texas all the way to the northern plains, triple-digit heat, rapid city dealing with that. once we work our way into monday, working with 100 in oklahoma city and start to to see some of this heat begin to spread its way to the east. some areas that are not too bad by the end of the week will feel pretty hot in a lot of those areas. we're tracking some rain. much needed rain along the gulf coast.
be drawn there from. now, the big question is will the defense bring up again those claims that casey anthony was molested by her father and brother to explain her behavior and her lying regardless of the fact we've heard little evidence to support these claims. this, we will hear tomorrow. >> and with the rebuttle case, who did they call to the stand? >> we know that one of the most important pieces for the state's case is to prove that this was a premeditated murder. the premeditation charge was challenged when we heard cindy anthony on the stand last week saying that she was reasonable for searching chloroform, neck breaking and a series of other rather incriminating items on the household computer and so, the prosecution brought in yesterday a series of witnesses, one of which was an officer at her company who could prove according to her time sheets, that she was at work and not at home when those suspicious searches for being made. there was also a challenge to dr. spitz' opinion. he was brought in by the defense, that the autopsy made on caylee's body was shoddy. so that's what
? >> well, i think that the state, for all the negative we say about the defense, the state has a very big burden to meet here and i'm not sure they're going to to prove first degree premedicated murder. that carries death. they're going to have to prove that the 84 searches on the computer were premeditation. chloroform searches, neck breaking searches, internal injury searches. they're going to have to tie that to casey as the premeditation for doing away with her daughter. the defense, oh, alex, i can't pick one thing that they need to concentrate on. the big ugly umbrella hanging off the defense for their closing is their opening statement. it was so full of assertions that were not proved that i just don't know how they're going to recue the mess. >> how long are they supposed to present these closing arguments? this is not going to be a quick open and shut. we have a death penalty potential here. >> right, the prosecution said early on, the lead attorney, really good attorney, that her presentation would take about a day. we have jury instructions, too, which i hate to say, it's the
. there's supposedly meetings between the white house and senate and big game players later this beak. in erms the of a deal we're getting a real date, not necessarily august 2nd, but july 22nd. why? there's a ten-day period needed for the congressional budget office to score any type of compromise as well as you're going to have to sell this compromise to the members. house republicans have been steadfast they don't want any tax increases to consider any type of compromise. speaker boehner needs some time to sell that to his members. >> you're talking about political high ground. you're not talking about the substance. i want to ask you about libya. there is a procedural vote the first step on the kerry-minnesota cane resolution on libya what do you see there? >> it's around 5:30 p.m. today. it really is a procedural vote on the mccain-kerry libya resolution which says for one year the u.s. should allow -- there should be force in libya, u.s. backed force with no ground troops. to one democratic aide said they really don't know how this vote the going to come come out. there is specu
of how it could be done. >>> now to washington, a big meeting on the hill tomorrow. leaders from both sides of the aisle will come together to try a break a deadlock over the nation's debt. yesterday president obama made a rare appearance in the white house briefing room to urge lawmakers to show up with the right attitude. >> it's my hope to everybody's going to leave their ultimatums at the door. they will leave political rhetoric at the door and we're going to do what's best for our economy and do what's best for our people. >> house speaker john boehner put out this tough statement quote saying, i am happy at the moment to discuss these issues at the white house, but these discussions will be fruitless until the president recognizes economic and legislative reality. luke russert covers capitol hill for us. luke, part of that discussion is the mini deal with senators reid and mcconnell were discussing earlier. where does that stand in this discussion so far? >> it's interesting, one of the things that is being thrown up on capitol hill is somewhat of a mini deal. saying look, there

for agreement. there is -- there aren't that many big differences between the boehner plan and the reid plan other than one critical difference which is under john boehner's plan, we would be right back in this mess right at the holiday season, having this same debate, creating uncertainty in the economy at one of the most critical times for the economy, the holiday season. we don't want to do that. that's the wrong thing to do. that's not just the president's opinion. that's just not the opinion of independent financial analysts. that was actually john boehner's opinion and eric cantor's opinion just a few weeks ago when they were making the same case the president is making. >> true enough, but there is plenty of precedent for short-term debt ceiling limits being raised. aside from ruining all of our holidays, what's the damage in revisiting this six months from now? is the president really, when it comes down to it after the warning from all the big bankers, is he going to veto a short-term increase? >> there are two points. first is we are in a completely different situation now than we
supported by evidence, and of course the molestation is a big deal. what jose baez was trying to show judge perry, according to himthere's as much evidence of a murder by chloroform as there is of a sexual molestation in the hands of casey's father, george anthony, or her brother. keep in mind, the only person who has spoke been some type of molestation or attempt is ex-boyfriend of casey's interrogated who was questioned. he said some point casey told him that she had been molested by her brother or her brother tried to do something. now, this is coming from casey, whose credibility of course challenged throughout the case in terms of the chloroform, they did find chloroform in casey anthony's car. i'm not sure you can equate those two as jose baez is trying to do. now they're determining the instructions that will be given to the jury and the charges to which they can convict or not casey. >> okay. lilia, stand by, if you will, and we'll bring in our two attorneys sitting through all of this with us this morning. randy and jonnah. how important is this, the issue of sexual abuse, from geo
back and look at the big picture and not get lost in the trees of the forest and see this case for what it really is. i think that she pretty much dispelled and shutdown all of what seem to be cockamamie theories, and i thought she was powerful and masterful sglcht and in your experience of a case like this, there is so much csi-kind of evidence, but the obvious gaping hole in the prosecution's case which is that they have no cause of death which allowed this opening for the idea that there could have been an accidental drowning, how does a jury weigh that? how do they weigh this expert testimony which is often contradictory with commonsense with the emotion? >> well, i think it is going to be very difficult for the jury to weigh all of the evidence in this case. however, what linda did say which is one of the most important things of this case is to look at the totality of the evidence. the big picture here. what does all of this evidence altogether suggest? and that is really what the jury is going to have to look at and think about when they deliberate. >> i think that one of the thi
as a whole. you have to look at the big picture here. co-counsel in his opening argument the you yesterday talked about rabbit holes. and after he sat down -- >> objection, your honor. >> sustained. >> my fear is that you won't look at the big picture. we spent two weeks in clearwater questioning all of you looking for people who would still be able to see the forest for the trees. >> objection, your honor, improper rebuttal. >> overruled at this point. >> in his closing remarks, mr. baez used words like liar, perjury, fraudulent, and the truth is what is the cornerstone of the criminal justice process both for those who are accused and those who are the victim of crime. it is lying that perverts that process. so during an argument where the most well documented liar ever seen in a courtroom accuses everybody of perjury, of fraud, of lying, the irony is rich indeed. >> objection, your honor, violation of paragraph number 5 of this court's order and move to strike. >> overruled. >> as we have come to find out accusing others of lying is classic casey anthony. when casey anthony wants to div
for both political parties to swallow. >> we agree on some of the big things. we agree that after a decade of racking up deficits and debt we need to get our fiscal house in order. we agree that to do that both sides are going to have to step outside of their comfort zones and make some political sacrifices. and we agree that we simply cannot afford to default on our national obligations for the first time in our history. >> joining me now nbc news white house correspondent mike. good saturday morning to you. >> good morning, alex. >> where does the debate stand today? >> reporter: we are on the verge at the white house in terms of cutting budget, cutting the spending and perhaps even raising the tax or changing the tax code. there could be a grand bargain in the offing on the order of some $4 trillion over ten years, over 12 years. a lot of those details are being worked out or it could all go bust. no one wants to see how the market is going to react on monday if this doesn't work out over the weekend. taxes -- looking for savings in those areas. even defense spending. something republic
, and that is part of the big debate regarding this honor that is given out. >> well, there are plenty of acts of valor all of the time. everyday our troops are in contact with the enemy, we are having troops killed and wounded everyday, and there are valorous acts that are performed by our soldiers and sailors and airmen and marines all of the time. it is only some of them that get recognized but if you ask any recipient of the medal of honor or indeed any recipient, he will tell you he is not wearing it for himself, but those who can't. >> and this is only the second living recipient since the vietnam war, and we know many hundreds of thousands of troops out there who have served multiple troops like sergeant petry who served in iraq and afghanistan and who you would like to have them receive this honor while they are there and hear the words of honor said from the president and thosexd attendance there. >> well, he said it eloquently in that it is important that we have a -- see it and hear it, because otherwise we don't feel important to it. and it is important to recognize these people wh

, the immigrant was able to tell about the big powerful man and get him in trouble. it seemed appropriate. now, it's going to turn on her. goliath is going to turn on david. >> what do you think is going to happen in the courtroom? do you think the judge will revoke bail? allow dominique strauss-kahn to leave the country? >> they will decide on terms to release bail. the $5 million bail will be lifted. his passport will be retained. he'll be able to move around the united states, not the country. it's a question of time before the charges are dropped. i think she's going to face perjury. >> let's remember, jonathan pointed this out, according to prosecutors, there's dna evidence in the case that, in fact, there was sexual contact. will this be an acknowledgement it was consensual? >> no one will ever know. if she's a liar about something, she's got to be discredited about everything. maybe it was consensual. who knows, but it's no longer a prosecutable case. you cannot keep going in court with it. it's got to be dropped. we'll never know. >> stay there. we want to talk about what's been a riveting
under bush era tax cuts and we've seen the unemployment rate skyrocket. the big corporations are sitting on megabucks in cash, they're not spending it on hiring. if the gop is getting all of this push back especially if the tea party on raising taxes, how can there be a deal in this climate? >> that's a great point. even house republicans now today and leaders are trying to lay the ground work to go along with this senate deal that's coming, but with no guarantee of deficit reduction you're still going to run into a lot of opposition within the house republican circles. they are far to see they will accept what's happening. >> she's putting herself in role of tea party fighter completely against the debt ceiling. that's helping her raise her name recognition and some $4 million. it leads to my big question, does the tea part and its leaders want a default? a top executive -- there's ways you can get ahold of me on facebook, twitter e, email. so a top executive is resigning from rupert murdoch's news corp. following that phone hacking scandal. and for the first time we're hearing directly
. caylee accidentally drown and casey and her father george covered it up. >> the defense made a big promise in opening statement, saying that it's going to have to deliver on. and now they're going to have to prove an accident. if they can't, the jury is going to punish them for having made that promise. >> on june 16th, the third anniversary of the day that caylee anthony was last seen alive, the defense begins its case. >> in 2008 -- >> its first order of business, attacking the holes in the state forensic's evidence, namely what wasn't found. no blood or dna in the trunk of casey's car. >> there was no profile generated from those items. >> no chloroform found in the anthony home. >> did you find any containers that at one time or another contained chloroform? >> no, not at all. >> and the only dna found on the duct tape that the prosecution claims covered caylee's nose and mouth comes from an fbi analyst who handled it. >> did you later find out that the profile was yours. >> i did and it was. >> i think they've come to expect that it's going to be there. and they would say, see
she didn't take the stand, we have heard it from nobody. so, it was a big promise from the defense going in that went unfulfilled during this trial. >> fascinating to see the effect of that on the jury, and nbc's kerry sanders as always, thanks to much. >> and coming up, we clear the air on the case that america just can't get enough of. mayhem doesn't announce itself. it doesn't call ahead. mayhem doesn't care if you're on vacation or just remodeled your kitchen or just said "i do." and though mayhem may be a part of life, with an allstate agent, you don't have to live through it alone. are you in good hands? so i took my heartburn pill and some antacids. we're having mexican tonight, so another pill then? unless we eat later, then pill later? if i get a snack now, pill now? skip the snack, pill later... late dinner, pill now? aghh i've got heartburn in my head.

, just as he told you. you know, counsel showed you the big poster with the pictures of caylee walking into the pool and said that this hypothesis has not been rebutted. well, i respectfully disagree. because ladies and gentlemen, the two people that counsel asserts were present when that happened were george anthony and casey anthony. george anthony testified on that witness stand the first day of this trial it didn't happen. as ms. burdick will point out to you when she points, ms. anthony also was given the opportunity to adopt that and rejected it twice. that has been refuted. by the evidence in this case. counsel also asserted to you that this crime scene was quote-unquote staged. here's the interesting part. he tells you on the one hand that george anthony is connected to the tape. remember he said in opening, follow the tape. but then on the other hand, he tells you that roy kronk is connected to the tape. dr. spits told you that somebody came along later and took the skull and taped it and in opening statement, the defense counsel told you that person was roy kronk. so they bot
